Very interesting

article and creatures. Im sorry I have never seen any ice worms myself, as I have never been on any North American glaciers.

By the way a microphoto of an ice worm might be a useful addition to your article, I'm sure somebody must have taken that.

Re: Very interesting

Ejnar-

Thank you for the comments and suggestion.

Within the article, I have added a hyperlink for a micrograph of a glacier ice worm. The micrograph can be seen at this link:
